Am I the only one how finds it HILARIOUS that the name people who do not believe in any gods chose for themselves is ATHEIST??????????

A THEIST believes in one god, usually the Christian God; but an ATHEIST believes in no gods, and a good number of them spend their time publicly speaking out against Christianity.

Dudes, you are ONE CHARACTER away from believing in my God. At least be creative enough to pick a different name. Lol.

Lern 2 prefixes. "A-" means none, absense of, or not. It's a negation prefix. So, it means "not believing in god(s)", or something along that line.
in the blink of an eye you finally see the light

It came to be at its height. It was commanded to command. It was a capital before its first stone was laid. It was a monument to the spirit of man.

Dude you just made my LIFE! Oh my. Lol.

And yes everyone, I'm joking around. So did it really never strike any of you as HILARIOUS? Just wondering.

Um, it's not a name that atheists "chose for themselves." This isn't hilarious.

"a" is just a prefix meaning without, like abiotic or asexual.

Rescuing a pointless thread.

From the discussion on other threads, I know I remember seeing at least one or two people mention having learned Latin in school. I was just wondering, since this thread touches on Latin prefixes, if anyone else other than myself had had Latin in school.

I did, five years of it. I can safely tell you that "a" is a Greek prefix, as is the root word theos. I doubt many people here took Greek.
